    In all that follows

    The Iliad and the Odyssey are, or rather contain, the oldest Greek writings we have. There is no way to date accurately any part of them. Scholars differ widely, and will no doubt continue to do so. As unobjectionable a date as any is 1000 B.C. — at any rate for the Iliad, the older of the two poems.
    In all that follows, here and in the rest of the book, the date given is to be understood as before Christ, unless it is other*wise stated.

    Hello friends,
    I can't understand or paraphrase the blue part. Would you please be nice enough to clarify it to me?
    I even know which is a verb and which is a subject in the blue part.

    Thank you

    Why do you think there should be a verb and a subject in a prepositional phrase?

    Because there is an "s" at the end of the word "follow" and that has made me confused.
    that's why I can't understand the blue part.

    "In all that follows" means "in everything that follows this sentence"; "in the material below", "hereafter".
